Last summer, Angelina Jolie replaced Tom Cruise in the film "Edwin A. Salt." Well, the movie will sound ridiculous with a title "Edwina Salt" so, it's now trimmed to a more inspiring "Salt."
And according to the LA Times, Jolie begins work today on the film, "a spy thriller about a rogue CIA operative who tries to clear her name after she is accused of being a Russian sleeper agent — perhaps falsely, perhaps not."
If you think it sounds very Jason Bourne-ish, you are not alone!
But Producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura says, "Salt is different because the character is trying to hide truths about herself rather than discover them. "The question of Jason Bourne is 'Who am I?' "
"The question of Salt is, 'We know everything about her, but do we?' (Her pursuers) have a ton of information to act on, but that's where they begin to question what is real and what isn't."
Salt shoots in Washington and New York City. It opens in 2010. To read the complete article, please click here.
